Your heart is beating through your ears, pulse is racing, tears brimming your eyes. You see your grandma and grandpa at the end of the isle, and just in the center they are starting at you. The person you want to spend forever with- your best friend, soul mate, lover, provider, and your rock. You've already been through so much, but you see a whole life ahead of you. You've cried, laughed, screamed, and riden together in the emotional roller coaster of life for some time now. Today is the day. It's the moment your lives have been leading up to. You get to say, "I do". I've been there, and I fell in love with that moment. It's a feeling you'll never forget, but I want to make sure of it. I want to capture that for you- all of the emotion, the pure joy, the tears, and the start of your forever. I want to be there.
THE WEDDING PROCESS
1. Check Availability
Please reach out through my contact form and I'll get back to you with packages that fit your needs and budget. Don't find something you love? We can totally make a custom package, no worries!
This is totally optional, and we can do it through email or video chat, but I love hearing about what you've dreamt up for your day! From colors to wedding themes, the more I'm able to see your vision, the better I will be able to capture your day! I'm excited about the things that excite you!
3. Engagement Session
I love hearing about your love story, and this is the best place for me to do that! I get to see how you interact, and you get a good idea of my shooting style. Engagements allow you to become comfortable in front of the camera before your big day!
4. Bridal Questionnaire
As we all know, weddings are full of DETAILS! From family photos and vendors to your big exit, we will go over everything you need me to know before your wedding day. This ensures that we are both on the same page, and so I can help you bring all those last minute details together into a comprehensive form.
Hair, makeup, florals, tuxes, bridal portraits, family portraits, THE CEREMONY, dj's, catering, first dance, cake cutting, OH MY! Lot's of things to put together, but it's ok. With the help of the bridal questionnaire, we will put this together to make sure things run smoothly on your big day. Oh! and did I mention cake cutting? yeah, definitely have to leave room for cake.
6. Wedding Day
From start to finish, you'll have me there capturing all the details you've been dreaming of for so long! All you need to do is relax and enjoy life with your new spouse! You can expect a sneak peek on social media, and you'll receive all your edited wedding images through your online gallery up to 3 months after your wedding date!
There will never be a day like your wedding day. That’s why I go the extra mile to make sure things are camera ready. No guests with their iPhone in the isle, no fly away hairs – just pure romance. Of course we can assume the inevitable, but that’s why there are bobbypins.
"KAILA IS ONE OF THE MOST GENUINE, AWESOME AND TALENTED PEOPLE I'VE EVER MET. IT WAS FATE THAT I CHOSE TO CONTACT HER AMONG HUNDREDS OF LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHERS ON THE KNOT. SHE WAS BOTH A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AND FRIEND ON OUR WEDDING DAY AND I'M RECOMMENDING HER TO EVERYONE I KNOW. SHE'S EXTREMELY RELATABLE, FUN AND CAREFREE, ALL WHILE CAPTURING SPECTACULARLY BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS AT PRECIOUS TIMES. SHE'S JUST THE BEST."
-ERIN & CLYDE
"KAILA ABSOLUTELY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS. SHE WAS PUNCTUAL AND PROFESSIONAL. SHE REALLY MADE US FEEL THAT SHE WAS THERE FOR US. ANYTHING TO HELP MAKE THE DAY AS STRESS FREE AS POSSIBLE. SHE WAS PATIENT BUT KEPT THINGS MOVING. OUR PHOTOS WERE ABSOLUTELY JAW-DROPPING. MY HUSBAND AND I GAWKED OVER THEM ALL NIGHT! WE COULD NOT BE HAPPIER WITH OUR DECISION TO USE KAILA AS OUR PHOTOGRAPHER. THERE IS NOTHING BUT AMAZING THINGS TO SAY ABOUT KAILA, HER TALENT, AND HER SERVICE!"
-KIM & ROSS
"KAILA WAS PHENOMENAL. FROM START TO FINISH, SHE FULLY KNEW WHO TO MANAGE TIME ON THE CRAZY DAY, TO MAKING US FEEL COMFORTABLE, EXCITED, AND CAPTURE THE SHOTS I HAD IN MIND. SHE WAS SO EASY GOING, VERY SWEET AND WE LOVED HAVING HER TO CAPTURE THE DAY AS IT UNFOLDED."
-KIMBERLY & RYAN
The 10 hour package typically allows for all the main parts of your wedding day, as well as a portion of getting ready and the dancing part of your reception. Many brides also get to have time to relax with this package instead of feeling like they have to rush from photos to photos to fit everything in.
Of course this is the one I would pick, but only because I love photos, and I love being able to capture the FULL story on your wedding day. Here you get getting ready through reception, and you have time in between to get amazing portraits! Whether we get to travel around your venue/reception to get cool images or find a nearby location, you'll have plenty of time for all the photos you want here!
Brides always ask me, "what's the difference between the 8 and 10 hour packages?". To be honest, it all depends on how much you want covered. With the 8 hour package, you usually get the important stuff, along with a littttleee getting ready or a littttleee reception dancing. If you're cool with that, pick this one!
